Okay, So I myself and many other people around the world (including you) have considered social media to literally being our second life. You can’t tell me that I am the only one who wakes up in the morning, faintly opens their eyes, and unlocks their phone just to check their Facebook News Feed, or to go on Snapchat just to check what Kyle posted at 2:00 in the morning. I didn’t think so.
As fun as social media may be (super fun!) we also have to accept the fact that we have a whole life in front of us that we are putting on hold just because we’re too busy trying to figure out why Rob decided to make Blacc Chyna a Kardashian. To be honest with you guys…. I’m still trying to figure that out too. Like come on! That massive love square that they have going on, whooo! Before I spring off topic (whoops! already did.) Let’s just go over the reasons why we all just need to go on a Social media cleanse for at least a week. Yes, I said it. A WEEK!
You Get To Explore Life A Little More!
Ahhhhh yes! Life. Not social media life, but an actual life. I’m pretty sure that there are many things that you have been dying to do laltley,but your phone always got in the way of it, or finally getting to do something fun with friends, and family and not having to snapchat a single thing of what’s going on. You can actually have fun without having that little ‘buzz’ getting in the way and literally ruining that moment. Think about that.
Less Phone, Less Arguments.
You already know what that means! With the presence of your phone being at a minimum you can avoid so much arguments with friends, family, or a significant other. Let’s say you’re at the dinner table with family.You keep checking your phone, and your mom honestly can’t handle it, so she starts to bash you about the lack of communication you give to the family. You can also be with bae, and they’re talking about their day, and your phone just suddnely goes off and instead of you to ignore that notification you unlock your phone, and quicky reply that message and they get angry and demand for your “undivided attention”. Maybe if that phone were to be away, then those situations could be avoided.
You Actually Become Less Paranoid.
Yes, hun! Less paranoid. Remember when Chris said that he’ll text you when he get’s home? (lies!) , or having to have that never ending battle with yourself wondering if you should text bae first or if you should just wait for them to text you back. Yeah, when you cut social media out of your life you actually don’t have to deal with those problems. You’re not with your phone so it doesn’t matter anyways. Having to not worry about that notificatiom coming in from instagram to know how many people liked your pictures, or to see if you got that text back, or to see that you got your message left on read and probably not getting a text back is probably the most best feeling that someone can actually experience, and I am being so serious.
So now you know some really good reasons as to why we should all take a nice social media break. Maaaaaybe I over exaggerated a little when I said we should do it for a week. Maybe just 3-4 days! haha. Thanks for reading, guys! Till nex time!
